there are a lot of paid services and free rotations out there, you just have to know where to look and have a VERY specific idea of what you want to gain out of it... remember, you have to be the MOST interested in your career development

I have gone with both the free observership and paid clerkship routes in the past and personally feel that the hands-on clerkship experience was much more beneficial to my career and residency application

I have a list of free observerships and contacts for the clerkships I've done, please feel free to PM me

Hello, I'm very interested in the free observership. I just pass my CS and I trying to get experience here in the USA (I'm IMG), but I work full time (another field) so I can't do clerkships. I live in Dallas area, do you know where can I look?

I read here that observership does not count as USCE. If you are thinking about USCE to boost your chances at residency match, then you might want to consider it only as your last resort...

Which other field are you full time working? That will hurt your chances to match no? I did medical scribe work but did not match last year. Doing USCE now. Programs don't understand I had to work to support my family and children

Default Need contacts for USCE - Externship

Dear All

I am also planning for externship or other kind of USCE... in PEDS
Why dont you post the contacts here in this thread so that all will get benefit.
Anyhow, please send it to my email: drsharefw@gmail.com.
But will this be possible for us as IMG from outside, and will there be any requirement for insurance or any other thing ...?

Another question is that when i contacted some of the paid agencies for the USCE, most of them dont garantee what kind of physicians and doctors we will be working with at our externship provided by them... i.e could they be not well known and high level physicians who will benefit us in the future application ?

Thank and Kind Regards

I have a list of free observerships and contacts for the clerkships I've done, please feel free to PM me

Can externships only be done if you are still a medical student? I graduated this year. Am I not allowed to do an externship? Am I elligible for just observerships and RAs?

Hi all, I just finished a 4 week paid externship at Dr. Roger Washington's Clinic in Santa Clara. I have found it very useful. He's a Stanford graduate and has lots of experience in teaching. If anyone is interested I happy to share my experience.

After my externship, I can see why most externship placements request some sort of payment. These doctors make room for your to participate in consultations and give you one-on-one tutorials, and it is very time-consuming. If you are only doing a free observership I don't see anyone would give you attention and write you a quality LOR.

Default Non-profit; free 30-min Guidance; USMLE application process

My name is Aditya, the volunteer coordinator at 30MinGuidance (Google: 30MinGuidance and look at Guidance Counselors in the footer area).

Ankita (who is preparing for USMLE), our volunteer, will be able to help, whenever time permits, Indian students who are eager to learn about USMLE steps.

More about Ankita can be found on our website.

Book a 30-min Audio session. We are a non-profit, and it's free. Spread the word.

Apologies in advance for not being able to help non-indian students. We don't have any such volunteers.
